Spacious presence within a group reveals a movement where our Soul and our belonging in the world become more coherent. This allows us to contact ourselves and others with more generosity, compassion, and wisdom.

Triads: At the end of the ICM Workshops and during the Follow-up groups, we will gather in groups of 3 or 4 to share our experiences. Triads are a practice of sharing and listening from our body and heart in a connected way. Reflective insights are welcome, but discussion and/or advice-giving are discouraged.
FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS: focus on the profoundly connecting resonance of the human voice using five vowel sounds. Sound has a way of connecting directly to the nervous system: we hear from the womb, just as sound is the last sense to leave us as we are dying. We are held in a universe of sound frequency at the depth of our Soul. The gentle enlivening effect of attuned vocal sound relaxes the nervous system and allows further integration from the ICM workshop the week before. Accurately attuned vocal sounds help to connect us more precisely with alienated or numb inner aspects we are habitually unaware of. A general sense of “slowing down” to make contact with these place can produce either a sense of tiredness and/or deep peace.

Group Inner Constellation Mobiles (ICM)
The Origins of Group Inner Constellation Mobiles (ICM)
In 2018, after ten years of studying and leading groups in the relationship between inner-stillness and living in the world, a “map of the territory” emerged. I have called the map an “Inner Constellation Mobile” (ICM) as it reveals more clearly the inner-dynamics we inevitably encounter in stillness. It spells out the movement of both our belonging and our becoming: i.e., the movement of the conditioned and ancestral influences of how we have learned to belong in the world, as well as our timeless potential as soul. As the mobile takes shape organically, a deep healing process begins between the constellations. We discover that healing and integration begin naturally when our numb or activated trauma patterns are seen and experienced by participants. We come to a visceral understanding that one person’s healing is every-person’s healing.
The ICM conveys our relationship to Silence and inner-stillness as an energetic-movement that can be felt in our nervous system. It is comprised of the Soul (spaciousness and listening) interfacing with the complexity of centuries of human conditioning (including family/ancestral and cultural constellations). Succinct, yet mobile, the six different constellations become an embodied representation of our inner landscape.
As in Family Constellations work, the Inner Constellations are energetically represented by other participants. When participants are chosen to “energetically” represent one of the constellations, they begin to experience the nature of transpersonal relationship. We discover that the energetic movement we are representing also exists in us! Undermining habits of “othering” and separation, we experience the liberating truth of our oneness with all of life. No matter what appears in the constellated aspects, it is the same evolutionary impulse restoring us to life.
